Pearls of Wisdom

"The Republican establishment does not think the country is in crisis, as you and I do. This level of debt, Obamacare, unemployment, economy, it's just a cycle, like there are always cycles in the country and in politics. The country, as founded, is not threatened. That's kook talk, they think. They really do."

"The Miami Dolphins locker room the players have a fine book. The players fine themselves for committing transgressions, and being arrested or investigated by the FBI will get you fined less than if you let go a stinky fart. Or maybe it's the same. I kid you not."

"The Politico is horrified here at the idea of losing "diversity" on the radio, union talk radio. I had no idea that the unions had a talk show. I don't think anybody else knows that, either."

"I have been wrong every time I have predicted Mrs. Clinton's future movements. You know, I'm a student of the women's movement when walking behind it, and that's how I've observed Mrs. Clinton. And every time I have predicted she wouldn't run, I've been wrong. I don't think she's gonna run in 2016, and I'll go further even if I'm wrong again. If she does run, I don't know of any front-runner who has actually won anything in a long, long time, and she is the presumptive front-runner right now."

"The lobbying-consultant class of the Republican Party and Republican leadership, who have been attacking the Tea Party and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this. That's why there hasn't been any establishment Republican pushback on the IRS. It's almost safe to say the Republican establishment might be willing to lose a couple of elections if it meant getting rid of the Tea Party; because it's clear, folks, they don't want to win any elections the Tea Party can claim any credit for."

"Over at Amazon, there are currently 2,600 reviews of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, and it has a collective rating of 4.8-out-of-5 stars. Now, I don't study these things a lot, but I have to tell you, I don't think I have ever seen such a high review ranking for any book at Amazon."

"This is an anniversary. February 17th is an anniversary. You know what it is? This is the fifth anniversary of Obama's stimulus. Nobody noticed, did they? Nobody's out celebrating it. Nobody's reminding you of it. Nobody is calling your attention to it. Nobody is applauding it. Nobody's doing stories on how much it mattered. We're not getting any stories from the media about all the great things that happened as a result of the stimulus. We're getting a big, fat zero, goose egg. Nothing."

"You cannot stimulate an economy by taking a trillion dollars out of it and then re-injecting it, putting it back in. Net zero. Net wash. There's no change."

"That stimulus never had a prayer. It was a PR gimmick from beginning to end. And that's why, on the fifth anniversary of the great stimulus that was gonna reignite the economy and erase all the memories of every bad thing Bush did, there's not even a mention of it in the media."

"In terms of Republican electoral politics, there is no conservative movement Inside Washington. What there is, is quite the opposite. There is an effort to undermine the conservative movement inside the Beltway."

"Wrecking the family car is part of growing up. The insurance companies know it; your parents know it. That's why your insurance rates are through the roof. But with Obamacare, it's just the opposite."

"Venezuela is on the brink of a revolution against the socialist government. Did you ever think you would see the day when you envied a South American country for its politics? It's cold, but for crying out loud, it's a decent question."
